Do you think high-schoolers should have credit cards?
Asked at Free State High School, 4700 Overland Drive on September 28, 2009
“I don’t think that teens should have credit cards. For myself, I have no idea how to hold on to money. ”
“I think that it depends on the individual. If they are proven to be responsible enough with money, then they should be able to have credit cards.”
“I think a good alternative to a credit card would be a prepaid debit card. A credit card might be a little overwhelming. We don’t pay bills. ”
“I think high-schoolers should be allowed to have credit cards if their parents feel they’re responsible enough. ”
“I think it depends on the person. Some would be responsible enough, some wouldn’t. ”
“I don’t feel like high school students have enough of a grasp on financial responsibility to have credit cards.”
